8 Trust of institutions

9 Proposed principles (work-in-progress) Reaping the benefits for all parts of New Zealand society whilst maximally protecting individuals digital rights: privacy- by-design as business model The need for inclusive solutions: ease of data access, sharing and use; equal data access for all; better public understanding of available data Data management in NZ should build trust and confidence in NZ data institutions: transparency and openness to enhance public understanding Data users should be accountable for responsible data stewardship and exercise a duty of care

10 Proposed principles (cont.) Reduce possible data oil spills: security–by-design Individuals should have greater control over the use of their personal data (e.g. right to forget and a right to opt-out) Informed consent should be simple and easy to understand We should, as far as possible, promote a data environment that retains New Zealand control over our data and data settings
